Hi WiE! Along with the University of Rochester SPIE Student Chapter (check out their blog here), we are organizing a workshop titled “Mastering scientific information for students in optics and physics”. Come learn how to navigate the ocean of scientific information and how to master and manage those information effectively for your research projects, applications, manuscripts, and dissertation(s).

Time: Wednesday, March 1st at 3:30 PM
Location: Goergen 108

Abstract: The mastering scientific information for students in optics and physics workshop provides skills-focused education to help students effectively search for information and evaluate the quality of that information. This workshop will cover resources for finding relevant literature and locating highly cited articles. This workshop will also provide students with a brief introduction to a number of tools for managing information as they develop their individual research projects, fellowship applications, manuscripts for publication, and dissertation documents.
